Qt Digia has announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire the Qt software technologies and Qt business from Nokia. Digia has sent a letter to the KDE team that it intends to pretty much continue what Trolltech and Nokia built up, so not a whole lot ought to change for KDE - luckily.

They've been selling commercial QT licenses for quite a while now, so it's only logical they be the ones to acquire the rest of the QT rights. It's not like their management is anywhere near as incompetent as Nokia's is so this should be a good move for all parties

You mean "Qt".

Qt == Qt
QT == QuickTime
